No matter who comes out on top, hard rock fans win with three cool new bands to listen to.
Van Halen’s long awaited album “A Different Kind of Truth” has been out for a couple of months now. The band has released two videos “Tattoo and “She’s A Woman”. The Other half, aka Chickenfoot featuring former Van Halen member’s Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, has also released a couple of video clips (“Bigfoot”and “I Need A Job”) since their album was released last September.
Which band has released the better videos? That is up to you decide. Cast your vote below!
She’s A Woman
I Need A Job
In 1972, glam rockers Slade released the song “Mama Weer All Crazee Now” on their classic album Slayed?. Little did they know the song would be covered by several bands later on.
In 1984, Irish rockers Mama’s Boys released a cover of the song on their self titled disc. In the same year, Quiet Riot also released their cover of the song on their disc Condition Critical.
The Slade version was the most successful, although Quiet Riot did experience some modest success with their cover as well. I am guessing many folks are not familiar with the Mama’s Boys version of the same tune. The band Mama’s Boys never really took off in the United States.
Check out the three clips below and tell us what you think! Which version of the song is best? Which video is the best? Obviously, Slade’s version is not an official video, but considering the age, it is still kind of cool. Quiet Riot & Mama’s Boys both had unique takes with their own videos.
Which one do you think is best? Decide with your votes below!
Has this song been covered too much, or do you think one of today’s hard rock bands should put their own unique spin on this song?
Please comment and let us know what you think.
In 2010, SNEW released their sophomore effort, We Do What We Want. The title track “We Do What We Want” reminds me a lot of the classic Rhino Bucket song, “One Night Stand” from 1990. I like both bands, and both songs, but only can win. Which song & video do you like better? Watch both videos and decide with your vote below!
SNEW – “We Do What We Want”
Rhino Bucket – “One Night Stand”
On this Halloween Edition of Hard Rock Hideout’s Video Showdown, I decided to use one of my favorite Halloween songs, as the subject piece for this Showdown.
Ozzy Osbourne’s song “Bark at the Moon” needs to introductions to most hard rock fans. Not only is this a killer song, but it has a cool video to boot! In 2009, the metal band Shadows Fall, released a cover of “Bark at The Moon” on the Deluxe Edition of their CD, Redemption. In March 2010, Shadows Fall released “Bark at the Moon” as a single and video. After watching the Shadows Fall video, it seems that they also tried to remake the Ozzy Osbourne video as well, right down to Jake E. Lee’s puffy white shirt.
So which video should win Video Showdown #18? Check out the two video clips below, and decide with your vote!
One of earliest videos on MTV back in the 80’s was Ph.D’s “Little Susie’s on the Up”. I have no recollection of this video whatsoever, and had no idea that Tesla’s “Little Suzi” was a cover song until just a few weeks ago.

In 2008, Hinder recorded a cover of the Steppenwolf classic, “Born To Be Wild” for TNT and NASCAR. In 2009, Buckcherry takes off where Hinder left off, by covering Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”. I thought both bands did a decent job but only one of these is clearly a winner

Choosing between L.A. Guns & Rhino Bucket is a hard decision to make, but that is exactly what I had to last night,when both bands played in Ohio at the same time. I like both bands a lot, but I couldn’t be in two places at once, so I had to choose.
I am curious to see if you would make the same decision I did, hence the reason for this weeks Video Showdown #14 that puts L.A. Guns with Phil Lewis, against Rhino Bucket.
I have seen both bands in the past, and I am fortunate enough to have some old clips from their live sets. Check them out below and decide who should win Video Showdown #14 below!

This week its Primal Fear vs. Judas Priest in the battle of video supremacy. You decide who wins!
In 2007, Primal Fear released a pretty good metal CD called New Religion. Primal Fear singer Ralf Scheepers could easily be a stand in for Rob Halford from Judas Priest. In fact Scheepers tried out for the lead role in Judas Priest, that eventually went to Tim “Ripper” Owens back in 1996.
Here is Primal Fear’s Video “Sign of Fear”.
Judas Priest released their new CD, Nostradamus in 2008. The new disc has had a lot of mixed reviews this year. Judas Priest has released a video called “War” in support of the album.
Here is Judas Priest’s Video “War”.
Who should win Video Showdown # 8? You decide!
While flipping through some CD’s in collection, I noticed a couple of covers that were kind of similar. The similar covers inspired this week’s video showdown.

W.A.S.P’s – Wild Child

One of the last videos from Cinderella came from the band’s CD, Heartbreak Station.
